• Volunteer at Claymont

    Use your talent to benefit our kids

    Claymont is lucky to receive tremendous volunteer support from dads, moms, grandparents and friends of Claymont—inside and outside the school setting. To ensure the safety of our kids, all in-school volunteers must pass a background check and agree to Parkway’s volunteer policies.

    We match a diverse set of skills to our volunteer opportunities. So, if you can write, code, teach, build, engineer, sell or create—or if you simply have a gift for corralling energetic kids—we have a job for you! Check Membership Toolkit to see what roles are needed now.

    Teacher support

    Claymont has incredibly gifted teachers and dedicated staff. PTO partners with school administration to recognize them and offer helping hands for appreciation events and class parties. We also recruit library aides and two “room parents” per classroom. Being a room parent is a great way for you to develop a strong bond with your child’s teacher while collaborating with other parents for two class parties per year, a teacher birthday gift and teacher appreciation week activities.

    Are you a room parent? Here are some tools to help:
